Baked Nutribites | No Oil No Butter Energy Squares

These energy squares is a recipe of chance. I made a batch of almond jowar coconut cookies and a bit of the cookie dough was left over. My husband said to try a different variety of an energy sweet bite. On his suggestion, we put in some dry fruits, nuts and seeds and set it to bake. Lo behold ! there was a tray of lovely yummy freshly baked batch of ….Baked Nutribites. I say, both of us were pretty thrilled that it turned out so good and moreover, there was no added fat. That was the clincher.
